Team Riders Carry GBC Motorsports to Class Wins and Podiums
It becomes more apparent with each passing round of GNCC racing that GBC riders are taking control and leaping to the top of the results in many classes.
Rob Smith led the way for team GBC this past weekend in St. Clairsville, Ohio riding his Dirt Commanders to his first U2 class win of the season, breaking a 23-race win streak of a fellow competitor in the process. Forrest Whorton’s 10th class win of 2011 served as an exclamation point on the championship he clinched a few weeks ago.
Also adding another win to his 2011 tally after clinching his class championship early was Nathan Hornacek. Jay Shadron’s season-high 7th overall out of more than 220 racers, coupled with his 10th Schoolboy Class podium appearance ensured that he will be a name worth remembering for years to come.
Ryan Smith, Kevin McKeown and Garon Davis also had solid 2nd place finishes within their respective classes. While Garon has already wrapped up his 2011 championship, Kevin is locked in heated battle that will come down to the final round in Tennessee.
GBC Motorsports boasts an impressive list of talent in the XC1 class and this time it was Jeff Pickens who headed up the list. His 7th place finish came after a grueling duel with fellow GBC rider Kevin Yoho, who wound up finishing 8th. The Powerline Park facility was not as kind to Bryan Cook and Johnny Gallagher, who after experiencing major setbacks both look forward to a bit of redemption in the next round.
Aarol Bright grabbed his second podium finish of the 2011 season in the XC2 class. Bright recently switched to the Ground Buster II rear tires and couldn’t be happier with their performance. Aarol is looking forward to a class win before the season’s end.
